A daily 15-minute walk helps reduce pressure by 5-8 millimeters of mercury, said Martin Halle, the head of the center for preventive and sports medicine of the technical university of Munich.

According to him, you can add Finnish walking, cycling and jogging to daily exercises, but it’s not worth overloading the body, Focus reported.

He also advised to reduce the consumption of sausages, cheese and bread, as these foods contain too much salt. It will be most beneficial to replace all these products with vegetables.

According to the expert, if all patients with hypertension will remember these rules, then the number of strokes and heart attacks will decrease by 50%.
